    Recommend an Android gamepad

    Hi all,

    I'm looking to buy my brother a gamepad for his HTC one for Christmas, as he loves playing retro games via emulator on it but hates the on screen controls (understandably).

    Problem is, there are so many! I've already done the obligatory Google search and that has narrowed it down somewhat, but before I make a decision I wondered if any of you actually own gamepads that you would recommend?

    I want to get him something with a phone holder as the idea of sitting your phone on the table while you play seems a bit pointless - surely the idea is to emulate a handheld console?

    Anyway, over to you

    Moga Pro?

    Regular Moga?


    Disclaimer: I have neither of these. They're just the first thing I thought of.

    For the amount they cost, the Archos Gamepad is a whole device with the required controls...

    A gamepad alone is a fraction of that cost and the point is he always has his phone on him... more to the point I don't earn enough to be spending £100 on my brother for xmas! lol

    The Moga looks like the right idea but has some awful reviews online, the Moga Pro has better reviews but isn't particularly portable...

    I think this is going to end up being a stab in the dark...

    On balance, I figure he doesn't go out all that much so will mostly be using this at home, went for the Moga Pro
